3 Gorgeous Interventions

This is what Frank Ghery wishes he could do. This deconstructed-reconstructed loft renovation by Lakonis Architects is just enough metal, angle, and wierd, but seems to all work out to a fully palette-enticing intervention. Always love the juxtuposition of ultramodern on chic historic!
My dad is probably a little horrified at this modern monster proposed for the middle of Tribeca’s historic neighborhood, but love of charming historic districts aside, this apartment complex designed by UNStudio would certainly add a little NYC-grown interest to go with it’s more traditional neighbors. Fun, modern, and unique – we’d love to see this one built.
And what’s a trip home to Boston without going to Jail? This was a jailhouse before Cambridge Seven‘s masterful interior renovation turned it into the Liberty Hotel, with one of the best restaurants in town, and a see-or-be-seen bar.
